Anna Minster, it's sure been awhile
I heard through the grapevine that you took a walk down the aisle

So it's true then, oh yeah, I remember him
From grade 9 geometry, his glasses had tape on the rim

So now you're a housewife, with a place in Lake Cascades
And you're husband's an architect, it sounds like you've really got it made

Is that your daughter, in that picture, she got your pretty eyes of blue
She got your crescent-moon smile, and that curly blonde hair just like you

No me, I'm not married, at least not anymore
I couldn't pay all of her bills from the factory floor

I spent time in the Army, they taught me how to fight
Until I came to my senses and saw that it just wasn't right

That's alright though, I've got a dog and a bungalo
I can sit on my porch and just watch the old sycamore grow

Well thanks for coming, but now it's time for me to go
I wish you the best for another 10 years down the road

This is probably my favourite of your songs, brother. The lyrics are so sweet that the first time I heard it I cried a little.

Why none of my peers in Leeds have heard of you, I will never know. But for my part, I will do my best to let them know.

I absolutely love this song. I'm in agreement with Jesse. When I first heard this song I cried. It's just so beautiful.Especially the first part where the piano come in. Simply amazing.

I got to say, this song is on a level of it's own. It's on a rare occasion that I can get lost inside a song like I do with this one. The melody is like soft snow descending from the sky; a falling dance spiraling into the core of my soul. You are a true artist. Your music moves me.
